Quantum Computing: Computing with a Probabilistic Universe with Mark Russinovich

by Microsoft Ignite 2019

Feb 13, 2020 / 1h 18m

1h 18m

Start Course
Description

Quantum computing algorithms can solve problems in seconds that would take millions of years on classical computers. Mark describes the kinds of problems that quantum computing accelerates, then introduces quantum physics, the qubits that are the foundation for quantum computing, quantum gates, and then algorithms. He uses the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit with its Q# language and simulator to demonstrate concepts and show that even though scalable quantum computers are several years away, quantum-inspired algorithms are solving problems more efficiently today.

Accelerating Your Journey from Automated to Autonomous Systems: The Microsoft Autonomous Systems Platform

by Microsoft Ignite 2019

Feb 13, 2020 / 33m

Start Course
Description

From smart sensors and actuating devices to integrated robotic systems, industrial organizations are employing increasingly sophisticated automation technologies to drive efficiency and productivity. As a result, a new class of systems are evolving to go beyond basic automation. Instead of performing specific tasks repeatedly without variation, these autonomous systems sense and dynamically respond to changing environments to accomplish a desired goal. Autonomous systems are capable of not only routine, process-driven tasks, but also deliver increasingly optimized results while freeing up human capital to operate at a higher strategic level. To get the most value from autonomous systems, businesses will need to take an integrated, cross-functional approach. This means leveraging existing expertise by engaging their domain experts to help build and manage these systems, not just data scientists and software developers. And, it means creating secure and compliant systems that are also transparent, explainable, and open so that they can work effectively with a broader ecosystem. All of this requires a platform designed for integration, evolution, and scale. Microsoft offers a trusted, enterprise-grade platform for creating autonomous systems that build on unique organizational domain expertise. Our comprehensive portfolio of tools and services enables organizations and their employees to develop, manage, and optimize autonomous systems across the full lifecycle. Our vision is to empower humans to achieve more by accelerating the journey from automated to autonomous systems. In this session, learn about this platform and the techniques that enable building this new class of powerful solutions.

Start Course
Description

The datacenter sector is estimated to represent approximately two percent of global electricity consumption, and as the demand for cloud services continues to grow, so does the need for datacenter infrastructure and the energy that powers them. Microsoft is committed to growing datacenter infrastructure responsibly through the use of renewable energy, reducing carbon footprint, and leveraging technology to maximize efficiencies across the supply chain. In this session, Brian Janous, General Manager of Energy Strategy for Microsoft, and Karl Brutsaert, Sr. Director, Global Corporate Renewables for First Solar share how their new joint effort in Arizona will create a more sustainable cloud.

How Adobe Delivers High Availability to Customers through Multi-AZ Architecture

by Microsoft Ignite 2019

Feb 13, 2020 / 45m

45m

Start Course
Description

Whether you came from another public cloud, multi-cloud, or brand new on Azure, you came to know about Azure regions where Availability Zones (AZ) are provided. Adobe is a big supporter of leveraging a multi-AZ design whenever and wherever possible. This empowers our high SLA commitment to our internal and external customers. Come and join Dave Beus, Adobe Sr Cloud Architect, and Kevin Rhodes, Adobe Sr Product Manager and learn how various Adobe products adopt Azure AZ in our architecture to achieve high availability and how to set up the foundation for more success and growth. We cover architecture and technical details where AZs play a key role in our use of VMSS, AKS, Application Gateway, just to name a few, and how they collectively help Adobe to achieve our design goals and principles. We expand into our analysis of Azure regions and service availability, and touch on other Azure services where we can share tips and guidance. We intend to use this session to provide a great education to our fellow Azure customers, whether you are another ISV coming to Azure, or Enterprise expanding more workloads.
